Track Name: Cretian Wings
Cretian Wings
(Lyrics by R.K.)

Machetes, pistols and lovers
bring the colors of heaven.
Bridges beneath these bones
skeletons hold live weapons.

Dawn snakes grip official
the debts, debts to be paid by morning.
Tongues of the hopes touch dollars.
Let's bring the dead to dinner.

And so we fall
And so we fall
to find on dimes we're crawling.

Shred of decency you swallow
as the minds of those that herd and drift away.
And in your tomorrow
I bet you never thought of your today

And so we fall
And so we fall
to find
at times...
We're crawling.
We're crawling.

We crawl into this hole
and we crawl into this hell
I don't want to see anymore

and we crawl out of this hole
We crawl out of this hell

It was over before it began
burn this glass castle in the sand.
Dead cross that nothing can rebuild
nothing left but the thrill of the kill.
Skeletons
Hands river
Through the mind of forgiving
Snakes hand the river
to the mind of the forsaken.

Forsaken.
Track Name: Another Red Day
Boy in the crowd
Crowded alone
Covered eyes for lies that keep

Quiet and loud
Hear the sun drown
Covered lies for eyes that weep

Its just another red day
Another dying day
So just hold on its over soon

Dirt in the tar
Sucked to underground
Fossils left for him to find
Extinguished stars
Light the sky
Nothing that could be designed

Its just another red day
Another dying day
So just hold on its over soon
Its just another red day

Its just another red day
Another dying day so just hold on its over soon
Its just another red day
Another dying day
So just hold on its over soon
Over soon
Over soon
Track Name: Meathooks
Meathooks inside the radio
Professional joke
The hunger and the fever
Shackled to the spoke

A new world
(loves)
a new crime.

Junky in a cantina
Grinning dead mouth crow
The stranger and the liar
Drifting from the smoke

A new world
(loves)
A new crime

Locked up inside the earthquake
No ones coming soon
The tiger and the bleeder
Streetlight is the moon

The transistor is mined

who will you turn to
Track Name: From Within
Old hunger, has it even been a day?
Breathe, stop holding your breath, oh god it’s starting again
It’s been sometime, the walls have held but now you hear buzzing
Hush, hush. You need to figure out direction
Hush, hush. Where is that noise coming from, it’s so familiar

And now you’re looking around, but you can’t pinpoint the sound
It’s coming from within, I will devour you
I see your eyes move around, left to right, up and down
It’s coming from within, it’s coming from within
And you’re looking around, you try to run from the sound
It’s coming from within, I will devour you
You plug your ears, tune it out, why don’t you realize by now
It’s coming from within. It’s coming from within.

Conveniently put in shallow graves.
Reach back into your head, can’t you see I’m not dead?
It’s been sometime, those walls are synapses, not brick and mortar
Push, push. A few more and I’ll push them down
Push, push. Hello, don’t you know my face?

And now you’re looking around, but you can’t pinpoint the sound
It’s coming from within, I will devour you
I see your eyes move around, left to right, up and down
It’s coming from within, it’s coming from within
And you’re looking around, you try to run from the sound
It’s coming from within, I will devour you
You plug your ears, tune it out, why don’t you realize by now
It’s coming from within. It’s coming from within.

Oooh, it’s coming from within, you listen closely (hush)
Oooh, it’s coming from within, it’s coming from within
Oooh, it’s coming from within, you listen closely (hush)
Oooh,

And now you’re at 8 hours. But I’m starting to nibble, just reacquiring taste.
And now you’re at 12 hours. And now the first leaks have sprung, I will let none go to waste.
First light, 16 hours. You try to not lick your lips, just don’t think of the taste.
Look at me, 20 hours. Oh no, you can’t go a day, no you can’t go a day.

21, 21. As seconds go there’s only ten thousand eight hundred more.
22, 22. How’s your confidence? Your fucking attitude?
23, 23. Look up, look at me. I want to hear you say,
24, 24. Oh wow, I made it a day, I fucking made it a day.

Shovel down, last scoop is out, I’m free.
Smile. Yeah, it took me a day but aren’t you happy to see me?

Oooh, it’s coming from within every day now. (hush, hush)
Oooh, it’s coming from within, it’s coming from within.
